You may recall the Compass interview a few months ago with the cartoonist, writer and adventurer Tessa Hulls about her work for the Atlas Obscura Kick-Ass Women’s Series. This week the tables are turned, with Tessa in the interviewer’s seat as she talks with the intrepid Mary Ann Thomas, who has cycled across two continents and who was in Port Townsend recently to give readings from her recent chapbook about one of those journeys, Asking for Elephants.

(First airdate: November 6, 2018) KELLY BARLOW: SOOTHING SPIRITS AS WELL AS SORE BACKS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Kelly Barlow, one of Port Townsend’s talented massage therapists. She’s a local girl – once upon a time she was even a cheerleader for the football team at Port Townsend High School. Over the years she built a thriving practice while raising her sons as a single mom. Like all great massage therapists, she listens to her clients. Stories get told behind the closed door of her tranquil salon. It’s as confidential as a confessional. She often ends up soothing spirits as well as tense muscles.
